Last week, the National Network for Youth (NN4Y) was honored that our National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC) received the 2021 Youth in Action Award from National Safe Place Network (NSPN). We are grateful to NSPN for recognizing the incredible work of our NYAC. It is our privilege to partner with them to transform systems to prevent and end youth homelessness.

The National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC) is a body of young people from across the United States striving to vocalize the needs of youth who have experienced homelessness by serving as ambassadors and engaging with lawmakers, service providers, and community officials responsible for creating and implementing change. NYAC members grow as leaders for change and play a vital role in shaping NN4Y’s priorities and strategies.

Learn more about the NYAC.
